Read & Rap invites you to explore the scope of literature targeted at students of middle and high school age. The course provides in-depth examination of criteria critical to selecting the right literature for the right audience. These criteria help teachers guide the selection process to achieve increased student interest and involvement, suitability by reading level, excellence in evaluation protocol, fairness toward special interests (historical, cultural, political, etc.), thematic unit support, and understanding of the interrelatedness of reading, writing, speaking, listening, viewing and thinking.
